Congressional Arts Awards

In the spring of every year, the United States House of Representatives hosts a Congressional Art Competition for high school artists. Members of Congress hold contests within their districts to choose winning pieces of art by high school students, and the winning entries from all districts are displayed in the Cannon Tunnel at the U.S. Capitol for a period of one year. The winning student from each district is invited to Washington, DC for the ribbon-cutting ceremony.

E-mail the Arts Education program or call (916) 808-3979 with questions.

The 2016 competition is now closed. View winning entries from all Congressional Districts.
